Penn Surfblaster question please

Postby Codswallop » Sun Apr 06, 2014 4:19 pm

Hi,

Its my first post on here. I fished beachcasting last week for the first time in over 10 years. I'm still a novice really. Unfortunately my cheap reel broke after a couple of hours and I had to pack up. It was great to be back out on a beach though and I intend to pursue this hobby a bit more, time permitting.

I intend to buy a fixed spool reel that will be ok for beachcasting round The Wirral and North Wales. My question is Will the Penn Surfblaster 7000 surfice or do I need to go for the 8000?

Thanks

Thanks for replies. Looks like maybe better with 8000.

We sell more 8000 than 7000 Surfblasters the main difference is the bigger spool on the 8000 means it retrieves 37 inches of line for one turn of the handle as against 33 inches for the 7000 size.
The line capacity of either is adequate but they come with a deeper nylon spool and a shallower braid spool.
7000 for Bass and Flounder type fishing or 8000 for heavier work is how I would look at it.

Thanks, I'm getting a bit more knowledge. I've been surfing the web a lot and checking reviews etc and I've pushed the boat out and decided to get a Shimano and have a Biomaster xsb 8000 on its way. :D
